Appr. end of Conference and Exhibition

"PhenoDays is overall a great meeting for anyone interested in plant high throughput phenotyping. I like that usually includes talks from the leaders in the field, tours to relevant facilities, and also that is small enough to allow one on one interactions with pretty much all attendees. I have gotten great collaborators at this meeting."

Argelia Lorence
Professor at Arkansas State University, USA

"Phenodays are a great meeting for researchers from different disciplines working in plant imaging and phenotyping science."

Dr. Anne-Katrin Mahlein
Institut für Nutzpflanzenwissenschaften und Ressourcenschutz
Universität Bonn, Germany

"Great opportunity to get all the latest advances in phenomics. Excellent planning and organization."

Dmitry Afonnikov, Ph.D.
Institute of Cytology and Genetics SB RAS
Novosibirsk, Russia

"Phenodays, time to catch up with Pheno-Tech."

Menachem Moshelion
Institute of Plant Sciences and Genetics in Agriculture
The Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel

"Phenodays, a great place to meet a community of practice around phenotyping issues."

Dr. Vincent Vadez
Director & Principal Scientist - Plant Physiology
International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), India

"What struck me most upon visiting the Phenodays for the first time was the truly international character of this conference, at least four continents being well-represent."

Wouter K. Vahl
Postdoctoral Researcher at the
Bavarian State Research Center for Agriculture in Freising

"Congratulations for another very successful Phenodays Freising, 2016. This is really a great opportunity for attendees to learn the most updated technologies in plant phenotyping in one place and within three days."
